There is a meme going around that interests me. It’s the Emotional soundtrack meme. Basically for 30 days you post songs/videos from the list below. My new blog buddy Lexi has been working on hers for a week or so and my real life friend Ben just started his.
I have copied and pasted the list and started thinking on it. My musical taste varies and is quite wide. I am the kind of girl who once I like a song, I buy the whole “album”. Then I spend months and months and months listening to a handful of albums. Currently I can’t get enough of Chiodos. (this has been going on for 2 years. It’s kinda ridiculous!) I also am stuck in the sound track of my youth. It’s comfortable there. I am a huge fan of singer/song writer/indie-ish music too, but I don’t know if this list will show that.
My problem is, when given a list to complete, I can’t think of anything. I just sit here and rack my brain or text my ex husband and say “hey, what’s my favorite song? or what’s that song that that guy sings, you know the one about that girl?” Scary thing is, he knows exactly what I am talking about. Damn, I hate him…(but thankful for his ability to understand my retarded brain.)
Anyway, here is my attempt at a meme. 30 days is a long time. But I have done a 30 day challenge before and survived!
1: Your favorite song.
see, I am stuck already…dammit.. can I do these out-of-order? I have a lot of the other ones already figured out! I can’t honestly say I have ONE favorite song. I probably can’t even pick 5. ugh…. ok seriously… I am skipping this one. Maybe after 29 days of posting other songs I will figure out my favorite.
#2 A song that makes you cry.
Daniel by Elton John
I love this song. And just about every other song EJ write/sings. I used to have a huge hatred for Elton. As a kid I was forced to see him in concert half a dozen times. I slept through an entire concert when I was 6 only to wake up for Crocodile Rock. I also saw him and Billy Joel in Atlanta many moons ago. Again, I slept through most of it due to a migraine. (I can sleep anywhere). But, the last time I saw him perform I was a grown up and was much more aware of the talent I was witnessing. He’s pretty amazing. And this song always catches my heart off guard and makes me tear up a little.
Hold on by Sarah Mclachlan
This song… gets me. every. time. When she sings the following phrase, my heart just breaks.
“Oh God if you’re out there won’t you hear me
I know that we’ve never talked before
Oh God the man I love is leaving
Won’t you take him when he comes to your door”
